Best of 2011 for older children
Annotation:Mina is an outsider. Everyone at school finds her a little bit stranger than they are comfortable with. Even her teacher can't take Mina's creativity and ability to think outside the box. When Mina's mom decides to homeschool her, Mina happily creates a journal of her thoughts about the meaning of life, what happens when we die, the wonders of the world around her some stories from her life. Mina's voice comes through loud and clear and she struggles with her father's death and the fact that she likes not fitting in. Beautifully executed.
